Welcome to Day 1 of Event #72: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship
Just one day away from the $10,000 World Series of Poker Main Event, there's a little appetizer in store for players willing to pony up $10K for the limit variety. It's time for Day 1 of Event #72: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship.
Like all of the $10,000 championship events, the $10K Limit Hold'em will start players off with 60,000 in tournament chips and see them play 10 levels lasting an hour apiece with no dinner break. Play begins with limits of 500/1,000 and continues up through a double level of 3,000/6,000.
No re-entry is allowed in this event, so players only get one shell each.
Last year, Scott Seiver topped a field of 114 for $296,222, joined by likes of Anthony Zinno and Dan Zack at the final table. Previously Joe McKeehen won it in 2017. Like all of the $10Ks, plenty of poker's stars are expected to turn out for the min-betting extravaganza.
Stay tuned to PokerNews to find out how Day 1 develops.
